Race Day 2010

Massive thanks to everyone who came to my race day on the 30th October.

The weeks leading up to the race were hectic as ever as we tried to organise prizes, running orders and manage the entries etc.

This year, again, we had over 100 entries as well as huge numbers of supporters watching the racing and taking in the atmosphere. We were very lucky with the weather with it staying dry throughout the day.

Before the race started, Chemmy and I ran a small fun fitness session for some of the race trainees. We played some balance games, challenged their co-ordination and did some speed drills. Hopefully the guys (and girl) enjoyed this and learned some fun exercises.

The racing all ran very smoothly (despite a nasty looking crash in the second race!) and we had some very exciting racing across the age groups, triples and team events. Its so great to see people enjoying the racing from very young through the ranks of trainees, ex-racers up to the mums and dads. Well done to everyone who took part, especially the prize winners.

We ran a silent auction with people picking up some great bargains on some fantastic items as well as many people being brilliantly generous. We also held a tombola with some amazing prizes, including skis, a luxury hamper, a helmet, goggles and many other goodies. Thanks to everyone for supporting these things and hopefully next year we will be able to have some more great items on offer.

I hope you all enjoyed it and that racing along side people like Finlay Mickel and meeting Chemmy Alcott and Alain Baxter inspires you to keep racing. Thank you to everyone who came along, I was again very touched by the support you have all given me and hopefully I can get out on the slopes and do you proud.

PS We really want to make it an annual event as its so great to see such a buzz around the ski club and the race section, if anyone has any suggestions for improvements please get in touch!
